Greetings to all Southern California technicians and readers of the Southern California Newsletter. ‘Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and you are starting the new year happy and healthy.

The first meeting of the year for the Orange County Chapter will be a special one. Kathy Smith
of the LA Chapter has agreed to do a program on aural tuning, focusing on tuning on the edges. Her program is called, “Extreme Tuning,” but don’t be intimidated by the title. The focus will be on aural tuning in the low bass and high treble. Many aural tuners trying to improve aural skills struggle with the many choices in the low bass and high treble octaves. Kathy has 38 years of experience with aural tuning. She has been a top concert technician and CTE for some 30 years in the LA/Orange County area. Kathy has a resume equaled by few, if any. She has also helped many local technicians, including myself and many of our chapter members, pass the aural portion of the tuning exam. Anyone in Southern California who is attempting to pass the tuning portion of the exam should not miss this class. Don’t be shy - come visit us in the OC. ‘Hope to see you at the meeting.

We are sad to announce that Paul Monroe, RPT, former Orange County Chapter President and Western Regional Vice President passed away unexpectedly on December 30, 2018. Memorial services will be held at 11:00 am on February 11, 2019 at his church of many years: Calvary Church, 1010 N. Tustin Ave., Santa Ana CA 92705 (714.585.0112) The church campus is very large, so plan to arrive a few minutes early and ask for directions to the Chapel. There are numerous service venues on the church campus.
